Watch me (uninterrupted eye contact for twenty seconds)
Lie Down – He passed, but only with many treats as an incentive.
Come when called – this portion of the test was done through the PetSmart store and with other people and dogs around, so even I was impressed with him.
I was so proud of him that he got a bath and grooming upon graduation. This was as much a present for me as it was for him because he had spent the morning digging a very impressive mud-hole in the yard. Jack, like all young boy-types, doesn’t miss an opportunity to get himself really nasty. Please note his mud-covered nose in his graduation photo!
Being the indulgent parent that I am, I am allowing him to take the summer off to “find himself” before he registers for the Intermediate Training Course in the fall. I keep reminding him that his education is vitally important, but you know kids these days…
